Drinking plenty of water, eating well, getting enough sleep, having a roof over one’s head and clothes to wear, and… keeping as active as possible. Those are the ABCs of a well-balanced life. A life where well-being, self-confidence and a sense of achievement can shine bright. An exaggeration? Not at all.
Stay active. Eat healthy food. Be happy. Love yourself. Exercise. Do more of the things you enjoy, believe in yourself and take a bite out of life. And life in turn will be kind, generous and good. No doubt a lot more than you could ever imagine.
There’s no age limit for starting to look after yourself. It’s just something you one day decide, for yourself. To ensure its long-term success, this decision must come from the heart. You need to be 100% certain. If you can find the time to eat, drink water and sleep every day, why wouldn’t you be able to find the time to exercise a bit too? There’s no need to go out and run 10 km every day or put yourself through an grueling workout of biking, swimming or god knows what. All you have to do is make the personal decision that it’s just as important as eating or sleeping. You have to turn it into a need that’s essential to your daily well-being, to the happiness of the “self”. In reality, this short paragraph is all about the “self” and that’s because you alone are responsible for your decisions and choices. Other people have no say in it, no say at all.
What makes me laugh: miracle diets and exercises so we can fit into our bikini.
It’s as though, during the winter, we’re letting ourselves go at the expense of our well-being. As though, under our thick wool sweaters, we’ve been hiding the fact, from ourselves, that we’re not feeling great. As though “bikini” was worth 10 out of 10 on the wellness scale. Are we really going to allow two little pieces of Lycra to dictate our state of well-being? Especially two pieces that sometimes just aren’t suited to our morphology. No thank you. If we don’t treat ourselves to the very best to attain our well-being, who’ll do it for us?
